By what means the subjoined reached
uie is a matter of no consequence. It re
lates to commonplace experiences which
are not often elaborated, and which are
possibly curious enough to warrant pub
lication. As to the existence of astral bodies there
is unquestionably a general unbelief.
Still, there are thousands of men nnd
women of high culture and intelligence
who are linn in the faith that each human
life is comixjsed of at least two entities,
the physical Imily and an astral body,
which is semi-physical and semi-spiritual,
and which is'very like the ordinary
frame of IIchIi blood, nerve, miisclennd
tissue anil which differs from the other
in heinir more attenuated in fiber. It is
an etherealized quality, with human ele
ments and the capability, at tunes, 01
separation from the corporeal frame and
an independent existence. At death it
dues not lose its mtlividiinlity, ana con
tinues to live either for an indefinite
period or, possibly, forever.
It is in the nature of a vitalized sentient
shadow of the body, and yet with aspecies
of tangibility that permits it, under cer
tain favorable conditions, to become per
ceptible to, and hold converse with, some
in the tiesli. Bucn are uie oencis in re
gard to this double of the human being
that are held by someof the most eminent
thinkers of the day.

a man who lies deatl before rae. As bis

The gradual approach of dissolution,
the illness, the physical, mental, moral

My life, including its course anfl eat

ticiiled in the straightest fashion; had a

without overexertion furnished 1110 with
a moderate competence. 1 enjoyed, as
a rule, superb health, and also enjoyed
ail almost total exemption from injuries.
Life thus passed equably nnd unevent
fully until 1 had reached a hall century.
It was at this period thai slight ripples
beuaii to disturb the level of tho hitherto
pacitic surface of the sea of life. Sleep,
always undisturbed and refreshing, be
gan to lie broken. Always had I fallen
asleep when iny head touched the pillow

before I would drop into a fitful and
restless slumber, which would be haunt

amusement, labor and study. The ine
vitable burdens of life became unendur
able and 1 lost all ambition. The once
populous future changed into a waste In
vhich there was nothing save gray anu-
tv and a lowering sky.
Meanwhile, so far as I know, I was
possessed at that period of uo malady,
and yet my fancy supplied scores of dis
eases. I felt the languor and waste of
consumption, knew absolutely that I was
affected by organic hearl dimi iiiiy. anu
at times felt the premonitory gnawinge
of a cancer, the insidious Bymploms of
Bright's deadly disease and the warnings

I had given a baby brother; a (lying

Kor months and months I fought his up
pearance; I felt for myself a great com
miseration, an acute sorrow that I was
obliged to die. It wasonly when I found
him close enough to 1 eel the urea 111 or
bis nostrils that 1 ceased to fear him.
Early, orthodox, religious training
made "itself felt potentially, and there
were moments when the child taught
idea of an "angry God frothing with
nine." and an ocean of flame rolling on
forover its sulphurous billows, with its
shrieking and damned souls, tilled me
with indescribable terror and apprehen
sion. Again, the suggestion of annihila
tion would possets me with its awful
menace. To ue olilileraieu, to ue separ

was even more terrifying than the an
ticipation of eternal torture.
In time the inspection of these various
horrors dulled their hideous intensity,
as tho victim on the wheel is said to bo
